First Aid Certification
If you have a job that requires you to be CPR and First Aid certified for OSHA compliance or just want to know what to do in case of an emergency we can help. We offer both American Heart Association (AHA) and American Safety & Health Institute (ASHI) classes every month at our office with weekday, evening, and weekend classes available to fit your busy schedule. Call today for more information or to schedule a class.
What is First Aid?
First aid refers to medical attention that is usually administered immediately after the injury occurs and at the location where it occurred. It often consists of a one-time, short-term treatment and requires little technology or training to administer.
First aid can include cleaning minor cuts, scrapes, or scratches; treating a minor burn; applying bandages and dressings; the use of non-prescription medicine; draining blisters; removing debris from the eyes; massage; and drinking fluids to relieve heat stress.
OSHA’s revised recordkeeping rule, which went into effect January 1, 2002, does not require first aid cases to be documented. For example: A worker goes to the first-aid room and has a dressing applied to a minor cut by a registered nurse. Although the registered nurse is a health care professional, the employer does not have to report the accident because the worker simply received first aid.
Do you have a group of people that need training? We also offer onsite classes for your church, daycare, business or school. Call to get more information about Onsite Training.
First-aid and CPR training is conducted using the conventional methods of training such as lecture, demonstration, practical exercise and examination (both written and practical). The length of training is sufficient to assure that trainees understand the concepts of first aid and can demonstrate their ability to perform the various procedures.
The First Aid Training Class is designed to meet the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) training requirement as stated in OSHA’s First Aid Standard. This program is in compliance with and satisfies Title 29 of the Code of Federal Regulations at 29 CFR 1910.151.
